First up from the company is the Moto X, a made-in-the-USA Android phone, with long-term efforts focused on finally banishing the password and more.
A longtime exec at Google, Dennis Woodside oversaw the 2012 acquisition of Motorola Mobility. As the new leader of the smartphone maker, which is being run separately from the search giant, he is now charged with creating hardware for the Android platform that can attract consumers and compete with a spate of rivals, while still maintaining a certain distance from the mothership. Woodside started his career at Google in 2003, working in such jobs as VP of Americas operations, where he managed ￼the company’s relationships with partners and advertising agencies. In the U.S. alone, Woodside and his team drove revenue from $10.8 billion to $17.5 billion in fewer than three years. Before Google, he was an associate partner at McKinsey & Company.
